This is an adorable dress. I like the fabric... it's not too thick, but doesn't feel cheap. Because of the color and fabric, it'd be great for spring. The shoes are also very cute and versatile. This dress also looks great on Molly, IMO, and she's who I bought it for. It fits my PM Molly just fine, even with her slip and undershirt underneath. The shoes fit too.
A for sure. Well worth the sale price of $14 for which I bought it, and probably worth the full price as well, now that I have it.

This outfit is so darn cute. Looks SO much better in person than in AG's pics... even the old ones. Mine is PM (as is my Molly) and it fits fine in the waist, but the pants do seem shorter than I'd like, but that's probably just me. The shirt I like a lot. It feels comfy. This set, like a few of Molly's things, is great for mixing and matching. I actually had this outfit months before I got Olly Molly.

These are really cute. My only gripe is, like others have mentioned, the thin straps. My Molly is a little clumsy and has a bit of trouble standing in them at times, but they usually don't effect her balance. A- to B+, depending upon how much the straps bug.

Wonderful outfit! This looks so sweet on Addy, and I think it looks even better in person than it does in pics. The colors really flatter Addy, but I could see this looking good on quite a few dolls. I like that the material the dress is made from is really good for spring... it's thick enough to protect against a little wind but not so thick that it'd be impractical on a warmer day.

I got this outfit from someone here on the board quite some time back. I specifically wanted the sweater, as I've got a girly who loves purple. I agree with others that have stated that this is great for separates but seems a bit much for a young girl to wear. Perhaps, like Nibs said, for a more special occasion, but I can't really imagine "Going Anywhere" in it. =P
I don't have the tights or boots, but I find the boots really unrealistic and rather yucky. I'm not a fan of purple boots (even those with the newer jumper outfit... I adore it above the knees). I'll give it a B+.

Just got this a while back. I don't have pictures atm (there are a couple sitting in my camera though, lol), but I can say it looks adorable on Nicki.
The dress is short, but awfully cute. The material is thin, but I wouldn't necessarily call it flimsy. The jacket is adorable and versatile and very high quality. The purse is cute, but is really more for aesthetics than for actual use. The shoes I love. I didn't have any trouble keeping them on her feet, and they're also versatile.

Bought this set from a board member. It's really quite cute.
The food pieces are typical AG food fare (I have Sam's lunch... I would consider these sets comparable). The napkin is nice and sturdy. The tin is also great. Nice size, very sturdy, and easy to have Addy "hold." The green ribbon on the handle is adorable... one of my favorite little touches.
And, of course, like everyone has mentioned, this is important and quite integral to Addy's story, so extra points there.

I like this set. It's hot here in Cali most of the time, so Quinn is able to where these a lot. The material is thin, but doesn't feel cheap. They seem like they'd be comfy. While the unfinished hems are strange, it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would.

I love this outfit! It's so versatile and cute. And it doesn't appear dated at all, nearly 13 years later. I don't have the headband or boots, but I have the red vinyl jumper boots, which I think are fairly similar. This works really well on PM and Mattel dolls. This outfit is really more timeless than a lot of the other JLY school themed sets, especially the more recent ones.

I got mine on eBay a while back, and unfortunately it didn't come with shoes and socks. But what is there is great. Fits great on PM dolls, and isn't too big on Mattel dolls either. Wendy (PM AGOT 12) is wearing this at the moment with the shoes and socks from the Plaid skirt and sweater outfit.

Mini Molly is so adorable. So like the ful sized girl. Her glasses are easy to lose, but we've been pretty careful to hang on to them. For a child, I can't see them staying long though, lol. For that fact, A-.

I have a PM 12 off of eBay as well. No issues with hair or anything else about her! I think she has a lot of charm. And as far as eye/hair combinations, the blonde haired brown eyed dolls that came after her are less unique IMO since she was first. :p I give her an A. The only thing taking away the plus is the typical PM stiffness of the hair which is to be expected to some degree.
^It's just apple cidar, she swears
And as if that weren't all enough, here's a whole album full from her trip to the spa... in my bathroom.

I got this set as a gift from my aunt shortly after it came out. All these years later, and it's still a favorite. The bracelets especially are constantly mixed and matched with different outfits. I remember once I had my doll and all the clothes and accessories over my friend's house and her then 5 year old cousin was stretching the crap out of one of the bracelets and it didn't break or even get loose.

I've had this outfit for quite some time... it was one of my first purchases from ag.com, if not my very first. I agree about all the pieces being basic and timeless. I think that the many layers would look dated now, but as seperates, it's an awesome set to have around. I would definitely recommend picking this up if you can find it on the secondary market for a good price.

I bought this coat a while back and just opened ot up last night. I like it a good bit, but there are a couple of minor issues. The fabric feels cheaper than I had expected, and not as soft. It does leave a good amount of room for a dress underneath... at the moment, Sam is wearing her talent show dress. The coat fastens easily with three snaps, and also has some lovely decorative frogs on the front. The mittens are adorable. The hat is quite a bit big, but I love the style and shape of it.

^Ahh, yeah, awesome wii indeed.
But yeah. I bought this one new from AG all those years ago when Addy was my only doll and I had her reinvented for a while as a modern character. I really loved this at the time, but I never used it with the dolls... I used it for the organizer feature. I didn't have a cell phone yet and I actually did used to call my friends (unlike now, lol), so storing their numbers was cool. And I really wanted one of those colorful iMacs, so this to me was a mini one.

Mine is PC as well. I got it with my Addy when I got her for Christmas a hundred years ago as a young'un. It was always my favorite and Addy did live in it for a long, long time, LOL. It is a bit brighter than catalog pics make out, but it isn't as bright as Goo's seems and yes, the colors do compliment Addy's skintone and overall coloring beautifully. I never thought the material to be too thin, and it holds up well to storage. The ribbon I also love... it's such a lovely green!
This outfit is definitely a favorite of mine still. I think it's one of the looks that every little girl wears for Christmas at some point in her childhood... ahh, how our mothers do love tartan plaid.

I just got Nellie on Sunday at AGPLA. The Samantha/Nellie section was a warzone too, and there were only two Nellies left in the section. She is really a knockout in person... so sweet. And we bonded quite nicely on the 2 hour ride home (my mom drove, so I got to snuggle her XD).
She's got a cute face, her hair is easy to deal with, and I love her meet outfit. I like the color of it on her. The shoes are the same as Sam and Molly's, and they are what they are. I've never had that much difficulty with them myself, but I do wish that there was something that at least seemed a little more period appropriate.

I love this dress. At first, seeing AG's pics of it, I didn't like it, but seeing pictures on here and other sites like this sorta changed my mind. Then at AGPLA over the weekend I saw it in person and that definitely changed my mind! It looks really sweet on Nellie... I thought the pastel color would wash out her complexion, but I think it actually brings it out. And the shoes are really cute IMO. I have the same gripe with the sleeves, although I just push them up and it actually looks sorta cute that way.

I just got this outfit today and rushed to put her in it. I love it! So charming. It's simple and appropriate but still so cute. The grey of the outfit seems a little lighter in person than in pictures though, but the whole effect is quite stunning really. A++

I love this one! I've had it since I was a kid too. The pieces are really versatile. The only thing I don't like are the shoes. Mine actually came with different shoes... flimsy sandals that were meant to be flip-flops with beads on the toes. They're made of that soft "leather" material... They look alright, but they don't stay on in play very well.
Post by Buckingham Alice on Oct 27, 2008 4:35:44 GMT -5
This outfit is really cute. I got it as a kid in probably '99 or 2000. But just a warning, if you live somewhere hot, take extra care of how you store it, because it can melt and stick together. Trust me. *sigh* (You can fill a book with the stuff I didn't know back then that I now wish I did!)

I got my Samantha in August for my birthday, and she is so gorgeous. Her hair is really soft, and unlike some dolls, she looks just like her pictures. She's absolutely stunning. I like her outfit a lot too, but I won't go into detail since there's a seperate thread for that.
Doll : A+++ Book : A-
(Her hair is a little frizzy at the moment, but that's my fault )
Post by Buckingham Alice on Oct 27, 2008 4:12:51 GMT -5
I got Nicki last year. The doll herself is beautiful... sweet expression on her face, soft beautiful hair and the freckles... I'm a sucker for the freckles. The hair can get messy easily, but that can be expected of curly haired gals. She's also just as huggable as I expected. The outfit is alright. It's cute enough, but the shirt/bodysuit kinda bugs me. I would have preferred a real shirt that would fall just at her waist or a tiny bit past it... I like leaving shirts untucked, and that would have given me lots of possibilties for cute casual looks. And I am of course bothered by the lack of underwear. Really AG? It's just weird. I really love the boots though... the color is so neutral she can wear them with lots of fun outfits. The skirt is cute, but I would have liked it a little better if the belt wasn't attached.

I love my little mini Samantha. The hair can get messy, but honestly it has less flyaways than my full-sized Samantha does. I agree that she's one of the cutest mini dolls... Mini Sam and Mini Nellie are as cute as they can be sitting together.
